Recognize! The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe REDUXE Edition is online and filling up fast. The project “invites a select group of disparate cartoonists and artist to come together in order to recreate every single character entry in the original Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe (Deluxe Edition) in their own inimitable style.”
The original Handbook to the Marvel Universe is basically the Marvel bible. Every strange attribute and origin for all characters, teams and dimensions are meticulously compiled. I mean where else would you learn that Attuma’s occupation is “Barbarian chieftain, sometimes ruler of Atlantis“? Or that Captain Rectitude was once “a former employee of Keaton’s Saving and Loan Company“? We’re talking about VERY important information here……
So make sure to bookmark the Reduxe project and enjoy the visual re-interpretations of what I consider to be a true cornerstone in the history of Western civilization…..
(And if you can get your hands on the original, prepare to have your mind blown!)
